We paid for them out of the back of a truck. The hatchery was recently flooded and the birds are on the second floor of a dank and creepy cobweb-filled barn.

They are in the backyard right now in a kiddie pool filled with straw. Until they are bigger, they will be living on the screen porch under a heat lamp at night.

And, no, they will not be house pets, in spite of all the begging.
